WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will host an Iftar dinner Wednesday evening to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The Iftar is the dinner that breaks the holiday's daily fast. The dinner became an annual White House tradition under President Bill Clinton, and President George W. Bush continued it.

The White House says invited guests include religious and grass-roots leaders in the Muslim-American community as well as leaders of other faiths and elected officials.

Earlier, the president will have separate meetings with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
